In 2007, the government renamed the airport to Ljubljana Jože Pučnik aiport. Jože Pučnik was a Slovene public intellectual, dissident, and politician, leader of the Democratic Opposition of Slovenia(Demos) between 1989 and 1992, the coalition that led Slovenian independence movement.
The airport is home to Adria Airways, the Slovenian flag carrier. There is currently one low-cost carrier serving the airport, EasyJet, which connects Ljubljana to London Stansted and Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport. A few other airlines also serve the airport.
On December 8, 2004, the airport received its first annual millionth passenger. Overall, the airport handled 1,388,651 passengers in 2010. It is the only airport in Slovenia with scheduled air traffic.
The airport is served by a highway exit off the A2 motorway and by bus service connecting it with Ljubljana and Kranj. A rail line to both cities is planned as well.
Airport is equipped with ILS Cat IIIb on runway 31. NDB and VOR approach are also available.
The runway of the Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport was closed to air traffic in April 2010. During that time, the entire width of the asphalt surface of the runway was renovated, as well as the asphalt surface on some parts of taxiways.
